what is going on as we head toward the end of the year. seema mody is at the nasdaq today. jeff, what do you make of what's going on in washington? i'm most interested in the fact that the markets have lost the volatili volatility. we're not seeing the markets respond to every single statement that comes out of washington right now. what do you make of that? >> i think it's the same washington waltz we saw last year. they didn't extend the bush tax cuts until december 17th. they didn't handle the payroll tax until december 23rd. i lived inside the beltway. i have a pretty good network on the hill. i think they're going to have some kind of staged in agreement and then agree to attack the entitlement situation in the new year. >> michael, what do you make of what's going on? how do you try and trade this? at least we had some volatility the traders could trade on. now we don't have that. >> i think the lower volatility is telling you this is an extremely resilient stock market. i've been calling this the rocky balboa stock market. the entire scenario playing out is the fiscal cliff end
numbers. on the technical side abigail doolittle, equity strategist and jeff kilberg, our founder and ceo at kkm financial. good to see you both. welcome. abigail, you've been bearish on apple for a while. does it mean you like nokia instead? tell us what you think. >> apple continues to look very bearish to me. it's trading in a confirmed double top. this pattern has been confirmed for more than a week now. it's careying a target of 353 so apple could actually tumble another 30% from here. supporting that double top, the fact that it's a very reliable pattern once confirm. a recent death cross suggests that the selling momentum has increased. plus, there are unfilled caps, gaps, down near 331 and 431, excuse me and 386. overall i think that app continues to look very strong on the downside target. nokia, on the other hand, is trading on the inverse of that entire pattern setup. trading in a confirmed double bottom this. pattern has been confirmed for almost a month now. the target is 515 so 30% potential upside from current levels. nice golden cross. plus, there's an unfilled gap at 5. s
a decision. i'll let jeff tell you how we went about that. >> the default position with foundations is they're going to go into perpetuity. perpetuity is a long time and we know from many foundations today that the donor's intent does not continue for many generations. and the energy and the passion in giving doesn't necessarily continue. so we're seeing, and bill gates is a perfect example, bill and melinda decided their foundation will spend down within 50 years of their death. we're seeing more and more foundations use spenddown as a way to have more resources for today's problems, and focus dramatically on what they do. >> jeff, are there particular areas of need, or charity, that you would like to see increased entrepreneurship? anything that looks primed for innovation to you right now? >> yeah, the genius of american philanthro philanthropy, which leads the world by far, is number one volunteerism. number two, as an american industry, innovation. so i think we are seeing, in -- for example, education, dramatic change taking place in terms of charter schools, in terms of focusing on s
? in his latest column, jeff goldfor a compares u.s. budget talks to merger proxy battles. jeff joins us to explain about that. plus, we have bob from jones day who specializes in wall street deal making. jeff, it is ammo on wall street to do things behind closed doors. you don't want word to get out on the negotiations. it gets too messy. >> right. i wouldn't advocate for a lot of people to do what wall street does. one thing you can say is they've helped facilitate thousands of mna deals this year. they've figured something out with these transactions. the deals that are most successful have the better chance of success are the ones that you negotiate behind closed doors, not the ones that turn into hostile battles and spill out into public, which is what we're seeing noup. >> i understand that, but at the same time, what wh are we going to have a deal already? people are so frustrated by this. we've had 13 months to think about. now we're down to 26 days. bob, can you really make a deal on the fiscal cliff when the negotiation is out in public? do you think we'll get a deal done? that

about that on talking numbers. it's carter worth and jeff tomasulo. gentlemen, good to see you and hear you i hope as well. carter, what do you think? you still with b of a? do you like hp as a darling for next year? what do you think? >> no. stick with b of a. if these are stable companies and if you can get one at its business trough low, you profit off its low. but that's only in effect if a business isn't being made obsolete. that's the issue with something like a hewlett-packard. it's not just catching a cord and twine company at its low which then becomes the new winner the following year. or the financial in the case of b of a last year. we would not step in and apply the dog of the dow theory here and apply it. >> but jeff, you don't like b of a do you? >> no. and i'm going to agree with carter. stay away from hpq. b of a is up 108%. now, the smart money is going to rotate out of bank of america and look to go into the stronger fundamental stocks in that sector like a jpmorgan. right now bank of america is trading at 12 times, jpmorgan at 8 times future earnings. wait. jpmorgan

advisors and steven gil garcetg and our own jeff cox. no encouraging words out of washington, here we go again, from either the fed or congress. >> right, and frankly that's very expected. there's going to be a -- some grandstanding about your political philosophies right up until the end, but the way i view this is we will not and cannot go over the fiscal cliff. >> you think the can will be kicked down the road. >> well, i think washington learned its lessons from the credit crisis. they are not going to have this go over the cliff, and i think it's going to be a recipe of a small part of cutting spending. a small part of raising taxes and a healthy doze of kicking the gan down the road. >> you would be so sure that these guys cannot do it when in fact here we are 18 days away. steve sax from your standpoint in, terms of etfs and in terms of indexing out there, how do you want to invest given all of these uncertainties as we approach year end? >> i'm in the camp i certainly hope we can avoid the fiscal cliff, but right now i don't have a lot of confidence. we're still seeing a lot of f
in washington. raymond james says he's expecting the santa claus rally. jeff is with me now also dean from barclay's, peter anderson and our own rick santelli. jeff, how can this market rally when there's still so much uncertainty out there? >> i am surprised the market held up as well as it did today, maria. it had every reason to be down four or 500 points. historically, the week after christmas it's up about 70% of the time with a little over a percent gain. and i think you're going to see that after tax selling gets over as of today. and in terms of the selling that we are seeing already, do you think it's partly because people are expecting capital gains and dividend taxes to go up regardless? >> yeah, i think that's right. there's still a chance for a solution to the fiscal cliff. washington tends to work on a last-minute basis. the fact that the republicans couldn't even get together and chose some kind of solidarity even though they knew the plan b wouldn't go through is disturbing. >> dean mackey, how do you see 2013? >> the positive thing right now sthot consumer spending was pic

. not only did 2012 help but i think 2013 will be even better for them. >> i'm wondering, jeff, a lot of the headwinds that bill just mentioned, the regulatory environment and very low interest rates which squeezes their margins, are any of these things going to clear up and go away in 2013? >> well, i think one of the reasons that you are seeing the big banks doing well coming into year end isn't so much that those things are lessening but they are better equipped to handle it. right now with the regulatory and the net interest margin pressures, scale and efficiency is more important than ever and the money center banks have it. it's a matter of whether they can deliver it. they have the scale and starting to see them deliver the efficiency so cost management is a big thing that helps them. also they have businesses away from the traditional banking, net interest lending, and capital markets, could see some pretty strong numbers next year and the money center banks, they are shrinking their liability footprintson so on a funding cost side they have a lot of advantages that a lot of o
. despite everybody's predictions. >> jeff, why do you think that is? investors are pricing in a deal it would seem based on the market we have seen the last several days, which is strong, if we don't get a deal, does that mean we have a big sell-off coming? >> you're right, michelle, we do. i think the key take way is yesterday when obama said we are only a hundred or 200 billion away bp. but boehner, and he said this a lot of times, balance. he want an eye for an eye. dollar per spending or revenue cut. right now the market is hanging in there. you see an uptick in the s&p michelle. >> yeah. we will keep watching it all. sticking around, let's go to bertha coombs standing by. >> closing lower for a third day, michelle, and today really seeing selling prices. we have low volumes going into the holiday. gold on track, actually. for its worst gain in 12 years. still up for a year but take a look at silver. that is what one trigger is telling me. these days it looks like this move is more about allocation, people moving out of metals and silver more after beta play is really taking up m

santelli always clean shaven is joining us next working on something for a little later on. >> we have jeff carter. we're going to talk about the fiscal cliff but from a much more cynical perspective. he believes that the cbo's call, if we go over the cliff in recession, well, he doesn't believe him. he says there is a keynesian base. what does it mean? he too cynical? i don't know. tune in in about 11 minutes to find out. >>> financials and the fiscal cliff plus the looming february stress tests is the big bank runup of this year finally coming to a close? brad hintz is an equity research analyst and joins us from new york. good to see. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> new year is going to be fascinating to watch. dodd frank implementation. let's just talk about the rules first. investors know these are coming and why are the stocks trading up in light of what we know is going to be a different kind of year? >> well, one reason that you've seen the runup is a lot of the uncertainty seems to be to be working away. the banks are making the changes to live in this post basal 3 dodd/f
. that's why i'm not endorsing that thing head on. wednesday jeff from virginia asked me about hillenbrand. they're the largest producer of burial caskets in america. stock's had a big move in the last two weeks, reporting a strong quarter and making an acquisition of caperion. i like where they're headed. i like the 3.6% yield. after this run let's wait for a pug back inspired by the fiscal cliff woes you know we have that more in the future. this one does look like a winner. i'm endorsing hillenbrand. the company has been mentioned as a candidate to give you a special dividend before year end to beat those higher dividend rates i think sadly are definitely in the cards. now it's time for some tweets. let's take our first tweet. this one is from @w3kn. he says, i think he's a he, he says "congrats to regina. are you guys playing nice while the e.p. is gone?" this is in mention to regina. great family. we miss her horribly. we have a good backup staff because she knew that one day she was going to have this baby. next tweet from mike_ded. his tweet says "regeneron since last wi
. >> let's get reaction. s & p capital, jeff cox at cnbc headquarters and rick santelli in chicago. sam, where do you stand on all this? what's your take in terms of republicans coming out with their plan, post the president's plan released this weekend as well? both plans where we left off with the last bargaining going on? >> i think, once again, what we're finding is that congress can teach shakespeare something about drama. i think they'll wait it out until the 11th hour and even allow us to fall off the cliff. it's easier to look like a white knight if they're reactive rather than proceed active. >> last week when the markets were volatile, now they are taking it in stride. we're coming back a little bit but not the volatility from last week. a little complacency or are we getting used to the drama out of washington? >> i think we're getting used to it? i think it's worth noting that on the 16th when we started to get this good news trickling out, the 19th when we got this big rally, the market stopped trading as correlated as it was prior to that. from the election until the 16th,
. scott is not there yet. jeff cox, the market is still waiting on the fiscal cliff. they're still sort of held accountable for that right now. yet, the investors' sentiment numbers are the highest in a while. what do you make of that? >> this isn't just the most hated stock market rally ever as some have suggested. this might be the most hated stock market ever. let's just talk about some quick numbers. market trading volume down 19% this year. we've seen $125 billion come out of equity based mutual funds. $300 billion go into bond funds. really, no appetite for getting into this market in terms of the volume. why? i think there's a general distrust of the markets. fiscal cliff and all of the other stuff. great story on the front page of wall street journal today talking about portfolio pumping. another example of investors thinking they're not getting a fair shake out of the stock market. >> larry, you call that complacency, don't you? >> that's right. i'm actually shocked that these investors appear to be asleep at the switch in light of the fiscal fiasco looming in less than a month
doesn't have that same political problem. >> jeff immelt told me he wanted to move out of china -- i believe ge has shifted resources out of china. >> a lot, especially appliances and low-end goods. but small and medium-sized manufacturers are sick and tired of the corruption, the slowness and all the problems that are so evident -- >> they steal your ideas, counterfeit your products. it really isn't the wonderland of free market capitalism that some people make it out to be. >> no. this is part of a broader narrative of a lot of manufacturers leaving china for vietnam, indonesia, bangladesh, mexico. this is really part of a decades-long trend. >> i have to leave it there. gordon chang, thank you very much. be sure to catch the tim cook interview tonight on "rock center with brian williams." that's at 10:00 p.m. central. >>> the french ought to stick with fine foods because we found out that their 75% tax rate on the rich doesn't work. the economy there is tanking, even worse, same story in britain. why would we want to copy their policies here in the usa? i'll try to get some answer
right. john, what are your clients telling you right now? jeff just said i think it was over the weekend that so many of their customers are clenched right now. that they're just waiting to see what the resolution of the fiscal cliff is that they're holding back on orders. is that the case with some of your clients as well? >> well, i think right now we haven't received the clarity of the election we were hoping for. i think both sides republicans and democrats are basically negotiating behind closed doors. hopefully i think the news over the weekend was a lot better than it had been. moving a little bit. senator corker moving as well. we had better data out of china last week. household net worth increased by $1.7 trillion which was a big number for the fed. it says the bernanke policies are working. in terms of clients what they're doing, obviously there's a lot of clouds on the horizon short-term. but longer term, it's positive. so right now towards the end of the year what we've been seeing is a lot of accounts looking to take out short positions and stocks that have been hef sli sho
former treasury secretary altman and jeff greenfield. bill? >> stocks are trading off the highs of the day with less than an hour to go. final hour, really from the get-go. optimism about the cliff talks and senator harry reid made some comments this afternoon that put a damper on that real. we've lost about 30 points. in that time. up 74 on the dow at 13,244. the nasdaq is doing well today, up 32 points. more than a 1% gain, although it is off its highs of the day at 3019, and the s&p 500 index is 8 plus points at 1426. the word on the street is because of the fiscal cliff, some investors are actually selling the winners, the winning stocks, and they are holding on to the poor performers, the opposite what have they have been doing the last few years. maria? >> makes a lot of sense given the fact that tax les go higher on capital gains. you want to get out of some of those names. let's find out how you should be investing 20 days away from the deadline. in today's "closing bell" exchange, carol roth with us, rich peterson from is & p, jonathan corpina from meridian equity partn
for worldwide aging population. i expect ge to be very upbeat. i think jeff immelt's going to tell a good story. some of that's because the company just boosted its dividend by 12% today p. you don't do that if you're doing poorly. the meeting will be the most talked about event of the day, maybe even the week other than the fiscal cliff. next up, oracle reports on tuesday after the close. i normally like oracle going to earnings. i heard so many rumblings of a better than expected quarter that it makes me nervous given the stock rallied some 25% on the year. the quarter's got to be lights out or we can see beatdown. wednesday morning we get a result from the exact opposite of oracle's general mills. nothing like -- this one just kind of goes up a little bit each quarter, delivers superior returns over a long period of time. and allows you to sleep at night. general mills hasn't done anything of late. but do you pocket that fine dividend, hold on, leisurely ride. stephanie link and i were talking about the stock last night. she's the co-director of actionalertsplus.com, my charitable trust. it'
for treasuries in the first quarter. i think that could be very comparable to how it looks in 2013. >> and jeff cleveland, let me ask you the same question in terms of allocating capital and your expectations for the new year. >> i think i agree that the economy doesn't fundamentally change at midnight on 12:31. so we're not worried about a recession. what we are worried about is people expect a deal to get done and they think we'll have a surge of economic growth. and we don't expect that either. growth will remain moderate. interest rates remain low. and the real big picture is a shortage of safe assets. there's only so many government bonds out there keeping slemts low. we like the ig credit so sector and we like high yield bopds. that's where you'll see your opportunities for income for the year. >> okay. so are you going to be doing -- are you going to be doing dividend payers? >> i think you look anywhere you can get income. dividends are good. the key here is what's the big picture and story. it's a shortage of safe assets. the fed and all of their actions in the last ten days have just
fundamentals? >> joining us right now to weigh in on cnbc contribute richard bernstein and jeff tanose of jpmorgan and our own bob pisani. gentlemen, thanks for joining us. rich, what do you think about fundamentals going into 2013, corporate sector, economics? >> i'm actually quite bullish about 2013. i think we're going to start getting, as the year goes on, easier comparisons for corporate profits. the corporate sector as we know is loaded for cash. i think when we get beyond this uncertainty and corporations have more certainty, i think we're going to see an m & a wave because they have underinvestmented for the future by hoarding all the cash so i think they will have to buy growth so i think 2013 could be a very good career. >> what do you think, joe? >> i agree. everything we've been dealing with the past year has been the uncertainty. is it europe, the election? is it the fiscal cliff, but as you go through those one by one, the election is now behind us. i do believe we'll have a resolution on the fiscal cliff and if you look at europe, the ecb put a gigantic band-aid on this
'm fading big time nokia. >> that's what makes a market, but that was pretty funny, jeff. thanks so much. merry christmas to you. scott, over to you. >> talk a little numbers and a street fight breaks out. go figure. let's get to mary thompson back with breaking news at hq. mar? >> morgan stanley wealth management is dropping john paulson's advantage and advantage plus funds from its retail broke rang menu. of course, paulson is the hedge fund manager who made a killing during the housing crisis. now in an e-mail sent to morgan stanley's financial advisers yesterday they changed the status of the funds from watch to redeem saying its client should pull the money from these funds. the company citing the fund's weak performance. two umbrella funds for paulissen basically employing a number of his strategies, and they have had a hard part investing in gold where he's not done so well. the advantage fund was down 5% in november, advantage plus down 5.6%. back to you. >> mary, thanks so much. mary thompson for us with the breaking news. face it, we're all getting a little older, but if you ac
have been around for -- just -- more than three decades. trust me on this. okay. here's one from jeff. boo-yah, jim, what is your strategy in looking at hospital stocks in general? how do you approach stocks like these in earning season? >> all i care about is government pay. if the governor's stinger toward hospitals, i don't want to touch them. there's not enough hospital mergers that can still be done without the government stepping in and saying you know, we've got to block that. with hospital, if the government's on your side, i could be a buyer. if the government's against you, stay away. but stick with cramer. >>> keep up with cramer all day long. follow @jimcramer on twitter and tweet your questions #madtweets.
is shopping. you just saw the updated numbers that came out this morning. >> well, jeff, yes, i'll concede its most recent quarter was not profitable, but it's been a profitable company. not nearly as much as a lot of folks would see and there's a reason. they have been taking market share and doing it in the cloud. use the cloud streaming services of amazon which is indicative of what an important player amazon is becoming in that field as well. it's an expensive stock. you're paying an astronomical p and still a dominant player in e-commerce and one of the new areas where it's dominant is the iphone this year. >> two companies we've been following very closely this year. thanks for joining us on "talking numbers." see you later. happy holidays. mandy? >> a quick look at what's happening with the markets right now. the do you is just hitting flat with the down side barely moving at this point. of course, we're counting down to the bell. also got aetna's ceo who says his hiring plans for the new year will definitely be affected by the fiscal cliff, and get this, he also says health care costs
schoenberger and also joining us is cnbc's jeff cox. gentlemen, great to have you joining us. do you feel we're further away? >> stepping over dollars to pick up nickels. he has no deal. you're going to see this continued, carried over into monday and even and beyond, further deeper into 2013 because even if there is a deal, you still have to look behind the curtain, the details of it, the spending cuts. how much are we talking about and the fact that the president of the united states is not willing to come to terms? >> do you feel that the president wants to go over? >> look, mandy, this is dysfunction palooza in washington. i've been talking about this since november. they can't get a deal done. they won't get a deal done. the market has been way too complacent. wall street, you were wrong. you were wrong. they are not going to get this deal done. the market is going to sell off chase to start 20 thrown. big >> it will continue to sell off. look, guys. here's the thing though. 25% right now of gdp is government spending. historically that's 20%. if there are going to be the spending cuts,
enough to do this. only jeff lacker from richmond fed gave incentive this time around. there is a bit of confusion as i head this statement. there's two different things going on. one is asset purchases. other is funds rate target. there are two different litness tests for now long they go on. federal reserve says it'll keep going if the labor market doesn't show signs of improvement. we have to ask bernanke how well this works together adds a whole, to really explain what is going on here. >> what is the implication steve, of that economic trigger on the fed's funds rate. for investors holding fixed income assets. as you move down towards the 6.5% magic point. what happens in the markets? >> well, i mean, you a sense e sensitively, the market will anticipate either an ending of of the program as we near it or even potential asset sales if we do get a rise in inflation towards 2.5%. i would like to point out, tyler, that 6.5% average number is exactly the number that was given to us by our -- in our cnbc survey yesterday. they hadn't talked about it at 7% but 48 respondent's came in
